A Project Guide is a useful l Project Management Tool
The use of a project guide as a management tool is advantageous for both the experienced and new project manager. This is a source of reference that not only describes in detail the best known path to planning a successful project but make its creation takes less time.
The right project guide to follow would take into consideration the current market conditions along with the global economic conditions. This is important factors since they will have a definite influence on many of the variables that will used in the decision making process of the project.
A past project guide would have some useful information on the basic structure of formulating a project. Unfortunately most of them were written before the computer age had a heavy influence in the business community. Today the uses of project management templates are the fastest and easiest path to starting the documentation process in the creation of a project plan.
Another area that has changed and must be reflected in your project guide is communications. The wide spread use of emails is only 20 years old. The uses of teleconferencing and online coordination of project development are even newer. The incorporation of these and other new technologies must be a part of your project plan so efficiency in time and use of a global staff can be optimized and used to your advantage.
The biggest consideration your project guide should explain is how the global market place will influence your decisions in your project and help you achieve the acquisition of new target audiences in regions never thought about before. The US, Europe and Australia are not the only places business can sell their product to. China and India also have to be in the picture not only because of their present size of their market, but their growth potential in the near future.
The new kind of project guide will include all of these new innovations into consideration when suggesting paths for your project to follow. The global market place has changed many things; make sure you are prepared for them.
